New housing regulations could harm trade, Lambeth Councillor Pete Robbins said today, after the council launched a judicial review against Government legislation allowing offices in employment generating areas being turned into flats.
The Cabinet Member for Housing and Regeneration, said:
Landlords in Brixton and Streatham have been handed a free reign to turn offices into flats - it's simply unacceptable.
The new regulations could harm trade in these key areas and raise the prospect of job losses, lost business rates and reduced funding for infrastructure.
